    Hello, I recently purchased two black Orpington and a mystery Orpington to improve my lavender flock. Supposedly the owner who hatched them had a blue rooster, blue hen and a black hen.There is a possibility that a "mauve" rooster was involved unsure if that means chocolate or dun, but something brown mixed with blue. She looks like the edges of her feathers are brown. Almost like laced. What is she?[​IMG] could a blue hen be this light? Any pictures of light "blue" hens or ideas about test breeding with lavender roosters?

    You might also post on the feather color thread as what you ask is very color genetic specific rather than general breed specific. You will get your question viewed by genetic color experts there.

    As to your question...sadly I do not know. See sentence above.
